Opening a new thread rather than hijacking the vsphere 6.0U1 thread (since I have no idea if there is a connection.) I have vsphere 6.0U1 on the host being replicated, and running veeam B&R 188.8.131.520. I am noticing a major delay (on the order of minutes) when replicating VMs. Out of the dozen or so VMs on that VMFS datastore, 3 are replicated hourly (backups of all are done nightly). In all 3 cases, there is a major delay for the 'Processing Configuration' phase. On the order of minutes. Even more strangely, for the first two VMs, the delay is always the same (7:38 minutes and 10:09 minutes respectively). The 3rd VM's delay varies, but is also on the order of 7 minutes or longer. There are no error messages I can see in the vsphere/vcenter task information, and the replication job does finish with no errors. Note that the backup jobs do not have this issue (they do not have the 'Processing Configuration' phase. I can't swear as to when this started, but my vague feeling is when I upgraded the host to 6.0 (or maybe 6.0U1?) I you want me to open a ticket, I will do so, but I am more curious, since there doesn't appear to be any negative impact - just curious if anyone else has seen this?
